Firm: ADA Technologies, Inc.

Institution: University of Southern California

Agency: Army
Topic: A15A-T010
Budget: 09/28/16 - 09/27/27

ADA Technologies, Inc. (ADA) and Dr. Massoud Pedram at the University of Southern California (USC) have successfully completed a Phase I STTR effort for the development of a lithium ion (Li-ion)/ supercapacitor hybrid electrical energy storage system (HEESS) to afford pulse power characteristics (projected ~10 kW/kg) in a high energy system (100...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: NALAS Engineering Services Inc.

Institution: University of Southern California

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T021
Budget: 07/11/16 - 05/10/17

Current state of the art oxidizers have been in service for decades, leaving the performance of our munitions and propulsion systems unchanged while our tactical objectives have increased in their requirements. Keeping with ongoing changes in the worlds military, maintaining a tactical advantage while meeting or exceeding mission capability requ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Silicon Ribbon, LLC

Institution: University of Southern California

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EW
Budget: 07/01/16 - 06/30/17

The broader impact/commercial potential of this project centers on increasing the efficiency of computer power utilization even as transistors continue to shrink in size. The energy density requirements of modern computing devices are higher than ever before, leading to strict power constraints in mobile devices, high operating costs for fixed i...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: R-DEX Systems

Institution: University of Southern California

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EW
Budget: 07/01/16 - 03/31/17

The broader impact/commercial potential of this project will be the development of a high speed and reliable wireless technology that will enable telecommunications and wireless network operators to keep up with society?s bandwidth and information needs. The tremendous growth of multimedia users and Internet traffic has placed a significant stra...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Prosapia Genetics LLC

Institution: University of Southern California

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT
Budget: 07/01/16 - 06/30/17

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project will be the development of a highly accurate genotype analysis technique and the computational pipeline for assessing genetic provenance in crop plants. The commercial potential of the proposed products and services is based on the need to increase ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Alelo TLT, LLC

Institution: University of Southern California

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EA
Budget: 01/01/16 - 12/31/16

This SBIR Phase I project will develop a revolutionary new tool for creating engaging language-learning content. Educational publishers, teachers, and even students will be able to create artificially intelligent "virtual role-players" that converse in foreign languages, responding to either speech or text input. Large-scale on-line communities ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: ADA Technologies, Inc.

Institution: University of Southern California

Agency: Army
Topic: A15A-T010
Budget: 08/17/15 - 02/16/16

ADA, in collaboration with USC, proposes the development of a high energy hybrid battery/supercapacitor to replace multiple heterogeneous energy storage devices currently used by the Army soldier. The hybrid electrical energy storage system (HEESS) will be developed incorporating ADAs high energy supercapacitor and a commercial-off-the-shelf hig...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: FOMS, Inc.

Institution: University of Southern California

Agency: Navy
Topic: N15A-T014
Budget: 07/06/15 - 05/06/16

FOMS Inc. and University of Southern California propose to develop the PRecision Optical Navigation Guidance (PRONG) system to provide continuous, high quality range and bearing data to fixed wing aircraft during landing approach to an aircraft carrier. The PRONG system uses infrared optical communications with advanced modulation and coding to ...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Transient Plasma Systems

Institution: University of Southern California

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF13-AT07
Budget: 06/15/15 - 06/15/17

Experimental data from a number of DoD supported research programs have indicated that electrical systems capable of producing highly repetitive bursts of high voltage, fast risetime pulses are a critical enabling technology for applications tied to nonequilibrium physical processes, such as combustion, boundary layer flow, and the generation of...
